Endava appoints industry expert Kelly Fegan to lead insurance division
With almost 30 years of experience in the London insurance market and the IT services sector, Kelly brings a wealth of insurance and IT change management expertise to Endava.
Before joining Endava, Kelly Fegan was a director of RI3K, the global (re)insurance trading service, responsible for all customer facing activity, including product innovation, business development, service delivery and client management, and he delivered an award winning technology service to more than 7,000 insurance professionals across 42 countries. His previous roles at Lloyd’s broker Heath Lambert included Group Claims Director, Group Compliance Officer and Legal Director which took him across all sectors of the industry including risk management and technical administration matters.
Kelly Fegan commented: “Endava was the near shore delivery partner I used in my previous role to develop extended functionality onto our core legacy system. The targets and timescales were complex and challenging but the project was a complete success and came in well below budget. I was so impressed with Endava that my opinion of outsourced services completely changed. Their open and honest approach, combined with their ‘can-do’ attitude, was a revelation to me and their core values around customer service and expectation management are aligned with my own, such that I jumped at the chance to join them.”
Commenting on the appointment, John Cotterell, CEO, Endava said: “We are delighted that Kelly has decided to join our team; he is a valuable addition to our insurance sector and his reputation, experience and calibre will ensure that we continue to be well positioned to support the insurance industry in driving innovation and change.”
Insurance is one of Endava’s largest sectors with its customers relying on its in-depth understanding of the industry to deliver world class solutions from its centres in Eastern Europe, making it the perfect IT partner for insurers that are looking to introduce new technologies and new engagement models for servicing today’s sophisticated customers.
“Unlike other financial services, the insurance industry has to date flirted with technology rather than fully exploited it. Whilst some companies stand out as pioneers and thought leaders, the market as a whole continues to struggle to adopt solutions for the benefit of the wider fraternity, particularly in the Reinsurance and Large Commercial sector. Technology services are the key enabler to address issues in the industry, such as centralising services, adopting regulations, enhancing income and product distribution. However, expert knowledge in the domain and an open, agile approach to development is absolutely essential to guarantee any degree of success,” Fegan added.
